The CHE has partnered up with CAMINA to host a series of events around popular education

Practicing Freedom – A Reading Group

For the 50th anniversary of the publication of Paolo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, we want to explore, celebrate & unravel its relevance for all kinds of practice. Opportunities for collective reflection & dialogue feel like a powerful and valuable way to untangle a text like this (not least because it can be a challenge to read). Both CHE and CAMINA are keen to carve out more collaborative spaces for this kind of dialogue and exploration, linking theory to practice.

Dates, times and locations:

Chapter 1: 24th March 2018, 11am – 1pm, Offshore Cafe

Chapter 2: 24th June 2018, 12:30pm – 2:30pm, For Fika Sake

Chapter 3: 22nd July 2018, 3pm – 5pm, Glasgow Autonomous Space

Chapter 4: 4th August 2018, 3pm – 5pm, Glasgow Autonomous Space
